Ever been in jail in Canada?
Those injuns can be good friends. Believe me when I say they have suffered a lot more than most.

Yes I've heard of their plight. And people still celebrating Columbus day, that evil bastard. He was so evil in his treatment of the Indians, even in those evil days he was sent back to Spain in chains.

I ent know nothing about no Washington Post poll, but it is plain common sense tat the term is offensive. The fact that "no one knows" if it is found to be offensive among the majority of Native Americans simply points to one thing: their total powerlessness, in American social and political life. If a team had a name that was "offensive to US blacks ("The Cleveland Coons"?), you can bet your life there'd be a thousand polls and lots of pressure for decades to change it. But Indians? Who gives a flying fart about those drunken bums on their reservations? Actually I like the 'Skins logo, it sends a strong message. But the name doesn't.

There was about 10 articles on this topic, that is in favor of keeping the Redskins name.  Post polls are the most reliable, and trusted in America.

Yes, and there's a million articles about keeping the Confederate statues, that don't make it right, right? I seriously can't believe that you, a proud Black man, can be so blind to the deeply offensive nature of these names and logos.

Where's RD????

Statues to Confederates are monuments to treasonous criminals, slavers and losers.  Every single one should be removed from public.

Most of the hype over Native American mascots, however, is just white liberals showing how 'enlightened' they are. I know and have asked Indians (yes, they refer to themselves as Indians) what they think and I have never heard one yet say they are offended by the 'Cleveland Indians', the 'North Dakota Fighting Sioux' or the 'Atlanta Braves;.  They almost universally say it is a compliment. 

I have had one or two tell me the "Redskins" name is problematic but most of my Meskwaki acquaintances just shrug that one off too.

Redskins aside, it is pretty hard for me to see how the logo below is anything other than praise and admiration.

Fair enough, but this 'little Indian boy' is cringe worthy

When I was at Univ of Michigan I fell in love with a Potawotami girl, visions of her in buckskins and a feather in her hair visited me every night lol. Then I saw her warrior boyfriend: big as a teepee! Thus ended my love affair with the Indian squaw lol.

That guy is known as Chief Wahoo.
I don’t know what the designers were thinking or not thinking when they gave him a red skin colour. That is cringe worthy.
I do like the big smile on his face, he looks pretty happy.

This is the logo that the Cleveland Indians used from 1946-1950. Much more representative of the actual skin colour of a Native American.

I lost my virginity with a Wagon Burner at the ripe age of seventeen. She was something sweet and I still think about that experience to this day.
